Ecuras is situated approximately 230 miles (370 kilometers) south of the national capital Paris.
Staying in only one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a narrow glimpse into the wider cultural and natural fabric of a region. So be sure to explore Poitou-Charentes' other cultural and natural attractions. Roughly 15 miles (24 kilometers) away you'll find Rochechouart. Set aside a day here to visit the Espace Meteorite and Chateau de Rochechouart.
When it's time to spread your wings, why not visit the nearest regional center. Angouleme lays 20 miles (32 kilometers) away and features sights such as Museum of Comics, Musee du Papier and Hirondelle Golf. Ensure you don't rush back to Ecuras until you've visited Angouleme's Angouleme Hotel de Ville and Angouleme Cathedral.
